President Donald Trump on Friday accused his former lawyer Michael Cohen of “lying to reduce his jail time” in the wake of a bombshell report from BuzzFeed News that said the president himself directed Cohen to lie to Congress.
Trump did not directly address the BuzzFeed article in his tweet, which added, “Watch” Cohen’s “father-in-law!”
The source material for Buzzfeed’s report did not rely on Cohen’s claims, but rather attributes the information to two federal law enforcement officials involved in the investigation.
Kevin Corke, @FoxNews “Don’t forget, Michael Cohen has already been convicted of perjury and fraud, and as recently as this week, the Wall Street Journal has suggested that he may have stolen tens of thousands of dollars….” Lying to reduce his jail time! Watch father-in-law!
